Sunday School Classes Meet Sundays at 9:30am.
Disciple Bible Class (Room 200)
Led by Joe Byrd
We are a discussion class of adults of various ages, interested in Bible Studies that are a bit more intense than the usual Sunday School quarterly studies were. Presently, our study is from D6 Curriculum, and is progressing through the New Testament. The D6 Curriculum is inspired by Deuteronomy 6 where Moses reminded Israel, before crossing the Jordan, not to forget the Lord their God. Newcomers welcome!
” Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

Led by Jim Cunningham and Jay Brown
This class is led through lessons focused on the Bible. The class shares discussion time, and searches for meaning in our everyday lives. The lecture, discussion and readings are from the International Lesson Series for Adults.
Key Class (Room 208)
This vibrant singles and married class enjoys both serious discussion and humor. They use the Bible and other supplemental literature to guide their studies. K.E.Y. stands for Keep Ever Young, but we hope to use what we learn in class to be a Key to our understanding of God’s plan for us.

A lecture/discussion format incorporating interactive study of various biblical topics or books of the Bible. Materials include the Bible in various translations, Bible commentaries and other pertinent literature to thoroughly examine the scriptures. We examine the text in its contextual setting, and highlight the contributions of modern scholarship. Participative discussion is central to class studies which focus on deepening and broadening our understanding of the Bible. Challenging propositions, lively interaction, and enjoyable fellowship are hallmarks of this class. No question is off limits as we pursue a fuller and more personal knowledge of the word of God.
